Evaluation of diverse and nutrient rich climate resilient crops/accessions for dietary diversification in marginal environments (trials)

Season
2021-2022

Experiment 1

Evaluation of top-yielding finger-, foxtail- and pearl-millet accessions for yield, stability and inter-trait relationships under varying water salinity levels and irrigation regimes

Objective

To introduce, evaluate and identify nutritious, climate-resilient alternative crops better suited for dietary diversification in marginal areas.

Experiment 2

Assessment of finger- and foxtail-millet accessions for grain and fodder yield based on different planting dates under contrasting water salinity and irrigation water regimes

Objective

To determine the appropriate planting date for optimization of yield.
